fantasmic - disney

For this week, Disney Tip #97, lets head on over to Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The summer months are drawing near which means one thing, larger crowds. Typically, Fantasmic! becomes very crowded because most guests see the nighttime spectacular before the park closes. When guest capacity at the show is high, Fantasmic! will open an auxiliary exit at the end of the show. Use this exit because it leads you right to the entrance and exit of the park! The main path in and out of the show is located around the middle of the theater, facing the stage. When exiting, pass this area and walk all the way to the end of the seating area to find the auxiliary exit. This will save you the hassle of dealing with larger crowds exiting the park through Sunset Boulevard.

    I have used the auxiliary exit at Christmas. It saved a lot of time, and crowd control was minimal, especially compared to the park as a whole. Plus you got to go back stage a little bit, which is always fun!

    We’ve used the auxiliary exit a few times and it definitely provides a quick exit out of the park. We don’t use it most of the time because it’s too quick. We prefer to linger in the park and gradually ease our way out of our Disney immersive experience.

    When you walk up thr steps to the rear of the amphitheater, is the auxiliary exit to the right or left?
